don't know why it's an optional update - seems quite important

Nope, I thought I'd installed all updates last Thursday, but somehow that one slipped in under the radar. It's installing now.

Still get the error though.

Noob question here. The package I've downloaded contains:

MICROSOFT.7.AND.SERVER.2008.R2.SERVICE.PACK-1.RTM.X64.WAVE1.RIP.DVD plus Windows6.1-KB976932-X64 plus Windows6.1-KB766932-X64.exe

I have tried to burn this as an ISO using Infra Recorder and Easy CD/DA converter and I can't seem to do it. I assumed as it said DVD rip that it would just burn as an ISO and then I could install from that.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks, John

So, is it better to use the .iso version, or the .exe version? Is there a difference?
